Too bad this edition of European Poker Tour Berlin didn't attracted any big names of poker but it's an interesting tournament to watch.
I think it's not just the event itself or the fact that is organized by Pokerstars but i think it organized in a bad period for the big names in poker.
As stated above russian players seem to do very well on european tournaments this year, although they didn't won the first place on any of them.
The first place prize is pretty consistent so i'm sure the final table will be pretty interesting. Also the actual chip leader it's a pretty interesting character.
